 PRIMETIME GARDEN
 TOUR - PAGE3

 

BY BRUCE ZIMMERMAN

The St. Catharines Horticultural Society presented it's Prime Time Garden Tour. There were eight gardens from Port Dalhousie to Third Avenue. Each garden had it's own personality which for in the most part reflected their owners personalities.

These are some of my favourite shots of the gardens. These are just some of the one hundred and twenty pictures I took.
